you first have to download Emule then install it. When you're done & launched the program, go to your Start Menu (Windows platform) and click Run.. then copy & paste the ed2k link above and press ok. You could also paste the link into your Address bar of your My Computer window (Windows Explorer) and press Enter. After that, Calla's Collisions will be added to your transfer list in Emule. Enjoy :)
Don't worry if it takes too long. You and theyllsoondiscover. It's the nature of P2P networks. Just keep it on & you'll get it in the end. Also keep in mind that the more you upload (through emule) the faster you'll download!

(OR: “CLASSICAL” MUSIC DOES NOT ALL SOUND THE SAME)
Here is a smattering of music that falls under the “classical” music umbrella, none of which is actually from the classical period (WARNING: this compilation is NOT meant to be a guide. Huge swaths of important subgenres and composers are missing!!). Also, Classical and Romantic music are what you probably are thinking of if you think it all sounds the same, so I am leaving them out of this compilation almost entirely, and focusing on the fringe—early music and contemporary 20th century music. (I happen to be repulsed by a lot of Romantic music myself, so so much the better!).
Here are some more details about what's inside:
“Early Music”: Medieval and Renaissance and Baroque periods
1) Guillaume de Machaut b 1300: Quant en moy. Hear how crazy early harmony can be!
2) Guillaume Dufay b 1400: Resvelons nous, on period instruments. Hear how crazy early rhythm can be!
3) G. P. da Palestrina b 1525: Rorate Coeli
Note: The Catholic church almost outlawed polyphonic music (ie, music with “parts” rather than unison) because they thought that so much was happening at once that the words of the religious texts were unintelligible and their meaning obscured. Palestrina’s Pope Marcellus Mass (1557) convinced the Pope that polyphony was alright after all. I am not including it here in favor of something with a faster tempo.
Madrigals: 1530- secular poems set to music for small all-male vocal ensembles. Sometimes serious, often raunchy and funny.
4) Pierre Certon: La, la, al, je ne l’ose dire (“La, la, la, I dare not say it. La, la, la, I will tell it to you. There is a man in our village who is jealous of his wife. He is not jealous without cause, but he is a complete cuckold. He gets ready, and if he takes her to the market, everything goes astray.”)
5) Anon.: Alla cazza
Baroque period:1600-mid 1700s (Bach most of all!!! Vivaldi, Handel, Pachelbel, Corelli, Telemann…)
6) Heinrich Schutz (“father of German music”): Das ist je gewisslich wahr SWV 388 (~1640)
7) Johann Sebastian Bach: Cello suite 1 in G, BWV 1007: Prelude, moderato. This is Pablo Casals playing; I love how rough and crunchy this performance is around the edges.
Johann Sebastian Bach: The Passion According to St. John, BWV 245 (1724). This is the disc I would want with me if I were marooned on a desert island.
8) Chorus: Ware dieser nicht ein Ubeltater; Evangelist
9) Pilatus: Da sprach Pilatus zu ihnen; Chorus: Wir durfen niemand toten
10) Chorus: Kreuzige
11) Chorus: Lasset uns den nicht zerteilen
12) Chorale: Ach Herr, lass dein lieb Engelein
Classical period: mid 1700s-early 1800s (Mozart, Haydn. You know.)
Romantic period: early 1800s-early 1900s (y’know them already-- Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Wagner, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Faure…)
Here’s one that breaks the mold:
13) Modest Mussorgsky (1874; orchestrated by Ravel, 1922): Pictures at an Exhibition, movement 2: The Gnome. Based on a picture of a toy nutcracker shaped like "a little gnome walking awkwardly on deformed legs".
20th century (+contemporary): 1900-2000 (duh!)
14) Igor Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring (1913), movement 4: Spring rounds.
15) John Cage: Bacchanale (1938, performed on solo prepared piano). This piece was the first one ever written for “prepared” piano, in which various objects (screws, bolts, plastic, wood, rubber, felt, weatherstripping, etc, are attached to or between the strings of the piano to produce a range of noises).
16) Gyorgy Ligeti: Musica ricercata (1951-3), movement 10: Vivace Capriccioso
17) Dmitri Shostakovich: Quartet No. 8 (1960), movement 2, allegro molto
18) George Crumb: Black Angels (1970), Departure (night of the electric insects, sounds of bones and flutes, lost bells, devil-music, danse macabre).
19) Steve Reich: Different Trains (1988), movement 1: America—Before the War.
20) Steve Reich: Electric counterpoint (1987), movement 3: Fast. Listen to Pat Metheny playing up to 10 guitar parts and 2 bass parts, superimposed, and rapidly switching between E minor and C minor and 3/2 and 12/8 time!
21) Steve Reich: Nagoya Marimbas
22) Arvo Part: Berliner Messe (1990/97), Credo
23) Henryk Gorecki: Kleines Requiem Fur Eine Polka [Small Requiem for the Polka] (1993), mvt 3, allegro decisio assai
24) Gyorgy Ligeti: Concerto for violin and orchestra, (1990-2), mvt 5, appassionato: agitato molto

EDIT: Does anyone have the new-ish Josef K anthology Entymology or any Orange Juice? I can't find either ANYWHERE.

This is the last song on the album, it's called:
Summer Gave us Sweets but Autumn Wrought Division...
It's a 5.30 minute instrumental track but really quite brilliant, I think anyway...
Make up your own minds: Strange Death of Liberal England

Here is The Cure - Wish
Also, here is the The Cure - Lost Wishes EP
For those of you who don't know what that is: http://www.musicfanc...lostwishes.html
I had downloaded the mp3s off of Napster back in the day, so they maybe a little more compressed then I'd like. I have the cassette, and I thought I had made my own digital copy from, but I can't find it. Anyway, hopefully, they appear on the Wish remaster that will come out in the next couple of years. Which is why it's not worth buying the present copy of Wish until the remaster. I'll sell mine when that comes out. I love the first two songs, "Uyea Sound" and "Cloudberry."
I also included "Spilt Milk", a song from the Bloodflowers sessions. It's one of my favorite songs by The Cure that I hope gets released at sometime.

jarvis cocker - don't let him waste your time
calla doing a cover of one of my favorite U2 songs:
calla - promenade (U2 cover)
the original version of this song is so short, nice to have a longer, more fleshed out version. especially with a band as talented as calla handling it.
the other half of postal service, james figurine:
all the way to china
a beautiful and melodic slice of electro-pop. this band is either danish or swedish, i can't seem to remember. someone passed a few of their tracks to me and i enjoyed it enough to purchase the album. this is the first song i heard from them:
union of knives - evil has never
well, time to go to work. it's been fun, hope you guys enjoy these tracks.
